The World Next Door

The World Next Door will launch for Switch via the Nintendo eShop, and PC and Mac via Steam, Humble Store, GOG, and Itch.io on March 28 for $14.99, publisher VIZ Media and developer Rose City Games announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via VIZ Media:

This debut video game from the multimedia entertainment company is produced as part of an ongoing publishing partnership with indie game innovator Rose City Games, with character designs by Lord Gris. Already award-winning in pre-release and most recently nominated for the upcoming 2019 SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award, The World Next Door follows Jun, a rebellious teen, who finds herself trapped in the parallel world inhabited by magical beings.

Combining the emotional storytelling and thrilling action of anime and indie gaming, The World Next Door delivers a rich narrative and fast-paced, real-time puzzle battles in a universe where portals connect two planes – the human realm of Earth and the magical world of Emrys. Players must activate runes to cast colorful spells and defeat mysterious enemies known as Grievances and help Jun uncover the secrets to opening a portal back to Earth before time runs out. Charming branching dialogue offers players the freedom to choose among various responses to impact the game’s course and outcome.
